This is a superb show and may have been a pristine sbd recording at one point but it isn't now. I am glad to have it but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone wanting to really check out the show. I don't think Dick was using equipment that would produce a 2nd gen cassette of this quality and therefore believe there may be more analog gens lurking in there. The show itself is stunning and if widely disseminated would make more folks appreciate 1980.

Good performance - not such a good recording.
A lot of tape hiss is audible on this recording. Other than that, I found it to be a pretty good show.

This show gets overshadowed by the night before but it is an exceptional show nonetheless, up there with Nassau, Rochester, Lewiston, Halloween, and Gainesville of that year. Haunting versions of Cassidy, and especially Music Never Stopped (probably deserving of the all time top 10 versions of this song). Garcia is obviously having a good rocknroll night, but Bobby's chops are really loud and assertive (that metal ribbon sound), particularly in songs like Don't Ease, Music, and the Goin Down the Road. The show's primary claim to fame is the Fire on the Mountain. The tearing feedback of the 3rd lead permanently changed the lives of everyone I've ever met who was at this show. Check out the post drums, GDR>A&A>JBG/Brokedown, which are all strong versions. Only downside here is the SBD, which is a bit muddy and pushes Jerry's guitar way back some of the time. Steve Rolfe's AUD (I think it is his anyway), despite the crowd roar, conveys a much more accurate sense of how loudly Garcia was playing that night. Back in those days, you couldn't have a conversation during a song with your neighbor like you could in 1990s. I staggered out of this show with my ears ringing for hours. A devastating experience.

We had a blast at this show. Jerry was on fire- check it out, 11 songs in the 1st set. Somewhere along the line, my tape of it disappeared. Many thanks for helping me relive the memory.
